“Whether you live here or have travelled to Qatar from the other side of the world, there will be something for everyone to enjoy at the fan zone. As well as providing a host of fun activities for all visitors, we hope the fan zone gives people a taste of Qatar’s inclusive and diverse culture, along with a glimpse of the remarkable FIFA World Cup that we will host in 2022.”
